list husband and father died in yesterday's accident. he is a correspondent writing about how technology is changing sailing. >> these boats go faster and they are designed to be as light as possible. they will break. that was always part of the plan. the problem is do they go too fast, and are they too big? >> the team artimus and team oracle boats are a new untested class of high-tech boat. they can foil or above fly above water. in fact, the sail is called a wing. the sailing world saw in them a chance to lose the stuffy image with a more exciting tv friendly event like nascar for instance. scott mccloud markets the sport. three years ago he warned against the america's cup and going with the new untested boats. >> it is a beautiful sport. it is el gebt. elegant. i don't think you need to push the technology side to gain more fans.
